Our Woodlands stage has been causing a storm, with Donovan, British Sea Power, Slamboree, The Heartbreaks, The Feud and Lake District heroes The Witch & The Robot bringing the ruckus! This is the stage where local champions come and claim their place in the annals of the North West’s musical pantheon! Not only that, after the bands have finished, you can stick around for our infamous Silent Disco until the wee small hours!
